Admitted FREE to San Diego Botanic Garden

The San Diego Botanic Garden is proud to participate in the Blue Star Museum program, offering free admission to all active duty, National Guard and Reserve members of the U.S. military and their families (card carrier plus 5 immediate family members). As our way of saying ‘thank you’ to the brave men and women of the U.S. Military, the Garden will begin our Blue Star program on May 1st – more than 3 weeks ahead of other Blue Star Museum participants!

Military families are invited to come and enjoy our restful 37-acre botanic wonderland, featuring 29 uniquely themed gardens and 4,000 different plant species. Children of all ages will enjoy exploring our two children’s gardens, Seeds of Wonder and our nationally-acclaimed Hamilton Children’s Garden, featuring Toni’s Tree House, as well as a Mountain Stream, Garden Music, Garden ABC Plant exploration areas and more. Blue Star participants are also extended free admission to attend special events held at the Garden during the summer months including Thursday Family Fun Nights each Thursday from May 31 – August 30; Fairy Festival on June 23; and Insect Fest on July 21 & 22.

Thanks to the generous support of a Garden member, the San Diego Botanic Garden is able to participate in the Blue Star Museum program, a partnership among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and museums across the country.
